Personally, I'd be happy if there was a commitment to be more mindful of 
working in public when possible in the future.

I suspect that this release cycle will see the archive reorganization in 
place.  I have seen indications that the MOTU Council is going to be folded 
into the DMB and heard that "MOTU is going away", but really have no idea 
what the plan is.  I would encourage those in leadership positions to lean 
in the direction of over-communicating.  

MOTU is something that quite a number of people are proud of and have 
invested in.  I suspect there will be bumps along the road, but with early 
and frequent communication and open decision making a lot of the potential 
bumps can be avoided.
